Message from Mayor Kleem

City Hall will be closed on Wednesday, Aug. 26 at 12:30 p.m. and will remain closed for the entire afternoon. City Hall will reopen on Thursday, Aug. 27.


The upcoming Grindstone Festival from July 2-4 is just one of many family-friendly events sponsored by the City of Berea.

Berea also offers free band concerts and movies, the Harvest Fest in the fall and the Light Up Berea Parade to welcome winter. Throughout the year, there are activities at the Active Senior Network and the Berea Recreation Center for residents of all ages. Our new Family & Youth Initiative is designed to provide fun events for families with children.

These festivals and activities, no matter how large or small, are made possible by generous donations from corporate sponsors, individuals and civic organizations.  We are extremely grateful for their support.

If you would like to join your fellow businesses and residents in continuing to provide family and youth events in Berea, you may do so at various levels of support.  In return, Berea offers a variety of advertising options from displaying a corporate banner at parades to printing your name in a program.

For more information or for a brochure explaining the sponsorship opportunities, please contact Megan Pochatek at City Hall, (440) 826-3316 or or Linda Kramer, media consultant, (216) 533-9496 or

Information also is available on the City of Berea’s official Web site, We welcome your support and so do the children, families and seniors who take part in Berea’s kid- and family-friendly programs.
